A council will debate a petition next month calling for it to ‘reject’ the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s titles after it was signed by more than 1,700 people. Campaigner Charles Ross proposed the motion in July that Prince Harry and Meghan’s titles are ‘morally wrong and disrespectful to the county of East Sussex’.
It has since passed the 1,250 names required for discussion by Brighton and Hove City Council, and it will be presented at a meeting for debate on October 24.
The petition is trying to get the council to agree that all royal titles should not be used in its documents and proceedings because they are entirely non-democratic and symbolic to the oppression of the general public by the wealthy elite.
The request is unlikely to be backed by the council, who don’t have the power to remove their titles.
You’d recall that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became the Duke and Duchess of Sussex when they married last year. Meghan became the first-ever Duchess of Sussex as her new husband was made the first Duke of the county in 175 years and the second in history
Harry also received Scottish and Northern Irish titles, becoming the Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel, making Meghan the Countess of Dumbarton and Baroness Kilkeel.
All royal titles are given by the Queen and it was up to the monarch to choose which one to bestow on her grandson and his wife.
